Texas Abortion Restrictions

The U.S. Supreme Court gave Texas abortion clinics a victory in 2016. Then Trump was elected.

In 2016, the Supreme Court blocked onerous regulations that had shuttered half of Texas’ abortion providers. On Friday, the court’s new conservative majority cited that case in overturning the constitutional protection for abortion.

President and CEO of Whole Woman's Health Amy Hagstrom Miller (L) holds up her fist as she descends the steps of the U.S. Supreme Court clasping hands with President and CEO of the Center for Reproductive Rights Nancy Northup after the court took up a major abortion case focusing on whether a Texas law that imposes strict regulations on abortion doctors and clinic buildings interferes with the constitutional right of a woman to end her pregnancy in Washington March 2, 2016.
